The Used copy of this book is not guaranteed to include any supplemental materials. Typically, only the book itself is included. This is true even if the title states it includes any access cards, study guides, lab manuals, CDs, etc.
The laboratory manual, written and classroom-tested by the author, presents a selection of laboratory exercises specifically written for the interests and abilities of non-science majors. There are laboratory exercises that require measurement, data analysis, and thinking in a more structured learning environment, while alternative exercises that are open-ended "Invitations to Inquiry" are provided for instructors who would like a less structured approach. When the laboratory manual is used with Physical Science, students will have an opportunity to master basic scientific principles and concepts, learn new problem-solving and thinking skills, and understand the nature of scientific inquiry from the perspective of hands-on experiences. The instructor's edition of the laboratory manualcan be found on the Physical Sciencecompanion website.
